Report: Capitals' Wilson to appeal to 3rd-party arbitrator
Tom Wilson is taking his case to the next level.
Wilson was handed the suspension after he leveled St. Louis Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist with a blindside hit during the preseason. He has currently served nine games of the ban and is eligible to return to the lineup against the Chicago Blackhawks on Nov. 21.
The 24-year-old inked a six-year, $31-million extension in July.
